Archive for the ‘wedding dress shopping’ Category

Seems like wedding dresses are constantly changing in style. Have you ever felt frustrated shopping and not have found the perfect dress? Hopefully by reading this, I can give you some insight of what is hot off the runway.

New 2012 trends to look for:

Unique necklines: The “illusion neckline” seems to be very popular. More of a sheer and delicate fabric that is draped over your skin that may often be exposed.

Gown by Monique Lhuillier

Two tiered skirts: Designers love playing with hemlines which gave them the idea of creating two separate skirts. It’s also forgiving in the hip and thigh area. Good way to hide wider hips.

Gown by Anna Maier/Ulla-Maija Couture

Horsehair trim: Often found on the underskirt of a dress to create a cleaner and crisp hemline.

Gown by Rivini

Lace sleeves: Of course our favorite Duchess last April. The lace sleeves give a nice sleek and classic look.

Gown by Legends by Ramona Keveza

More trends to look out for: ( Inspired by the red carpet)

Front slits

Deep plunging necklines

Lots of sparkle

Bridesmaids dresses have definitely become more up to date. Bridesmaids dresses do not need to look  like actual “bridesmaids” gowns. They can be trendy, cute and stylish for your lovely ladies to strut down the aisle. Find something that appeals to everyone in your bridal party. Not all of your gals have to wear the same dress. However be careful that that they stay within the same color palette, fabric and length.

Here are some pics of my new favorite dresses for the upcoming season!

Are you a middle sister?….or do you know one?  If so, have we found the wine for you!

First, before we can tell you about the wine, we just have to tell you how we found it…it’s too good.  Last night the three of us girls here at Arcularius Events went out with Mom to find a wedding dress for Marianna, the youngest of us three (who got engaged a month ago!).  We chose Diamond Bridal Gallery in Granite Bay because of its wide selection of Spanish designer dresses, which Marianna fell in love with after countless hours searching wedding gown websites.  This place did not disappoint!  The interior was comfortable, the sales associates were totally sweet, and the dresses were to die for.  Marianna tried on just seven dresses before she found “the one” and, after a few tears and a bit of dancing in the dressing room, walked out of the store with a receipt for a wedding gown!! 

What does this have to do with wine?  Well, at the beginning of our evening (before the dress was found and the tears were shed), middle-sister Mairead stepped out to find a bottle of champagne to turn dress shopping into a celebration.  She came back with champagne and a wine that was just too perfect…Middle Sister Rebel Red.

Rebel Red is a red table wine, but the collection of Middle Sister wines includes Drama Queen Pinot Grigio, Mischief Maker Cabernet Sauvignon, Goodie Two-Shoes Pinot Noir, Surfer Chick Sauvignon Blanc, and Smarty Pants Chardonnay.  How adorable is that?  What’s more, lots of these bottles have won awards up the ying-yang, so not only can you give your favorite middle sister a wine that describes her personality, you can give her wine that she’ll actually like!

Check out Middle Sister’s fun website for info on all their wines, a silly music video, and an enlightening “Which Middle Sister Are You?” quiz. (PS, we took it, and we are apparently Drama Queens, who knew?)

Have fun wine tasting!
